Sewing Organizer Pattern

  1. Stain embroidery hoop if desired, making sure to sand off the finish first. You can also choose to paint it whatever color you would like. 

  2. Roughly arrange your fabrics to decide the order. Tack them in place when you know what fabric you would like to to use. 

  3. Apply bias tape across top edge of what will be the shortest pocket, making sure the bias tape extends at least ¾” on either side of the hoop.

  4. Lay bottom pocket on top of upper pocket, pin together.

  5. Press bias tape open; topstitch it up the center of both pockets.

  6. Apply bias tape across top edge of the upper pocket, making sure to also enclose the top raw edge of the bias tape pocket divider.

  7. Arrange largest piece of fabric over inside hoop, making sure it’s taught; tack into place with the glue dots.

  8. Arrange assembled pockets over inside hoop, making sure it’s level.

  9. Place outer hoop over inner hoop and use the screw to tighten it as tight as possible, making sure to continue smoothing the fabrics out so they stay taught. Center the screw on the bottom.

  10. Trim all fabrics up to edge of hoop.

  11. Using hot glue, apply ruffle to back of assembled hoop, folding both raw edges towards the back and overlapping the end of the ruffle over the beginning. If no ruffle is desired, run a bead of hot glue around back of assembled hoop.

  12. Embellish if desired with beads, bows or charms, either sewing them on by hand or applying with more hot glue.
